North Attleboro, Mansfield Police Departments raise $5,000 for Special Olympics Massachusetts


“Our MPD Dodgeball Squad “ThrowBo-Cop” took home the trophy at the inaugural Glowball Dodgeball Tournament to benefit Special Olympics at North Attleboro High School! The team dipped and ducked through round robin play to set up a showdown with Spongeball Dodgepants for the championship.

Despite a stellar display of ground game by Detective Walsh, who avoided a barrage of Spongeball fury like an over-caffeinated cheetah, the ThrowBo-Cop crew were forced to a winner-take-all final game. Down to the final 30 seconds, and up against a 2-on-1, Detective Pennie appeared to float upon the court like a fluorescent gazelle, evening the sides so that time expired, forcing a sudden death overtime! It was then, just moments into OT, that we sent Spongeball back to his pineapple.

After, the law enforcement teams joined Special Olympics athletes for a unified game to determine which team captain would earn Top Dog status. Congrats to Top Dog CJ!!
